PMCS (Preferred Medical Claims Solutions) Rehab and Sex Addiction Coverage

Are you are a loved struggling with sex addiction? Struggling with sex addiction alone can be an isolating experience. Despite common misconceptions, sexual addiction is not the same as “too much sex”. Instead, it is a persistent and escalating pattern of sexual behavior despite the serious consequences to one’s self and others. Individuals who are addicted to sex are powerless over their thoughts and behaviors, even in the face of adverse personal and professional consequences. Despite many failed promise and pledges to change, they are unable to stop acting out sexually. Like other addictions, sex addiction is a serious problem will not simply “go away” with time or through willpower alone. The right treatment program can help you or a loved one take an important first step to recovery from sex addiction. If you hold health insurance through PMCS (Preferred Medical Claims Solutions), your plan may help make sex addiction treatment more affordable.

Does PMCS pay for sex addiction inpatient rehab and treatment?

Sex addiction is a serious condition that requires the same type of inpatient detox treatment and rehab programs as other mental health conditions/addictive behaviors, including substance abuse and compulsive gambling. The body produces chemicals and neurotransmitters during sex that can cause the same type of chemical “high” as drugs or alcohol. Additionally, sex addicts often have a background of neglect or traumatic abuse (physical, sexual or emotional) that negatively impacts how they relate to others. The right treatment program will help address these serious issues.

Do not delay getting help for sex addiction because you are worried about the cost. If you hold insurance through PMCS (Preferred Medical Claims Solutions), then your plan will cover costs associated with inpatient treatment programs. The amount of coverage and out-of-pocket costs will vary depending on your plan. PMCS is a large network that includes provider organizations, health plan carriers, third party administrators, Federal employee health benefit plans, workers’ compensation administrators and health management networks. If you have a plan with a high monthly premium, you may have a lower deductible, copayment or coinsurance; plans with lower monthly premiums are generally associated with higher out-of-pocket costs. A benefits coordinator can help you better understand which costs will be covered by your plan.

There is no shame in seeking help for sexual addiction. Entering an inpatient treatment program is an important first step to recovery and living a full life.
